Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I am not new to saltwater reefs, but this is my first nano build. I am curious what people's opinions are on the current stocking plan for my nano

 

Clownfish Pair

Firefish Goby Pair

Cleaner Shrimp

The clown pair is fine, not sure how well 2 firefish will do with them, they are skittish fish and clowns are the opposite.

 

3 fish really would be best.

Is this due to space in the tank or bioload?

I think it's a bit of both... Bioload is a factor but you have to consider your export.

Personally in my evo I have a pair of clowns and a yellow clown goby. I wouldn’t want to have more fish than that in such a small tank.

I have never managed a nano, but wouldn't water changes bi-weekly or even weekly maintain proper params?

Any reason why?

Limited space plus the bioload. The clowns will get aggressive as they get full sized and too many fish won’t help with that.

I will take this under advisement. but would love to hear from others personal experience.

Its many factors.

 

Bioload is one thing. Yes waterchanges can work but it may not, each system is different.

 

Another factor is real estate. the smaller the tank, the less territory. This can lead to more aggression between fish.

Alright, I think I might settle for the firefish pair with a single clown as I can transfer that from my old tank being shut down. This seems the best possible outcome as that will be much lighter on the bioload.
